... what an example of how trendy cycling has become! Saw it for the first time on Saturday and wandered in. More staff than customers, the staff were young on-trend kids and the products (most of them) eye-wateringly expensive. Mrs Engineer was shocked/disgusted "How can these kids afford stuff like this?" and "who do these people think they are?" etc.
I tend to agree. I bought a new bike from Wheelbase in Staveley last week and I did wonder how these well spoken, terribly trendy young shop assistants could hope to buy any of the stuff in the shop, assuming that they earn not much more than minimum wage. I sort of half expect them to apologise for the price of stuff. But then again, I am on old, old, man who's first wage was £5 5s a week!
